    I can't see how Hampton can gain back his spot!

    Hoke and now McLendon have outplayed him in relief.

    Casey's last season surely?

    Great job Stevie Mac

    id like to see hood get more work inside though, this could be a mean rotation on the dline. i really wish we would have kept gibson and woods, both were "too raw" at the time but wed have nothing but freaks for a front 7 rotation if they were around
    This is something I've been waiting for, as well. Hood seems to get a good push on the pocket. If Heyward can play the run (and it looks like he can) and McClendon can rotate between NT and DE, that could be a dangerous rotational line. I'd love seeing it.

    Dude is a big boy, and can move that will equal success. Now it all depoends if he could do it week in and week out for seasons upon seasons. Let alone start the game

    Man! That would be awesome if Tomlin will do this !
